    Week of March 2 – March 6, 2015 

    Hello Sachems! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I can’t tell you how proud I am to serve you as your principal! This past week was a true representation of how powerful Sachem Pride can truly be! There were so many moments this past week that made me so proud and humbled to be leading your high school.  The students who serve on the Principal’s Roundtable are truly representing all of you with their insight and depth for ways to make our school great!  From being a part of the energy on Thursday with the presentations by Bob Upgren and identifying how to live our lives with true purpose was very inspiring. Bob Upgren was so impressed with our school community, I could have been more proud of each of you! Thank you for being a great host! On Saturday, I had the honor to spend the morning with the STW and to watch their entry in the New England Drama Festival. Their performance of, The Second Death of Priscilla was one of the most powerful performances I have ever seen! Your talent and expression of confidence, creativity and engagement was awesome. So…as always, you never cease to amaze me! On Sunday, I had the pleasure of watching the MHS Cheerleaders compete in the South Regional Tournament at Whitman-Hanson Regional High School. The team was so strong and committed to excellence. You were truly amazing to watch!  Finally, to watching the members of the Student Council come together as they prepare for their state conference next week has been amazing! What a great week! I want each of you to remember that we are the Black and Orange…and please never forget the power of Sachem Pride. So, with that said…let’s make this week even better! Here are a few items for the week ahead.

    1. Sachem Shout-Out:

    1. ELA & Math MCAS Re-Test ~ March 2 - 6
      • Just a reminder to our students who will be in need of taking the MCAS Retest exam for Math, which will begin on Thursday, March 5 and will conclude on Friday, March 6. I am very excited that we do not have any students in need of re-testing in ELA. Well done! 
      • I wish our small group of students who will be testing a great deal of success with this test. I know you can do it!
    1.  MHS Music Department Pops Concert ~ Friday, March 6, 2015:
      • The MHS Music Department will be hosting their annual Pops Concert on Friday, March 6, 2015. The theme this year is “Celebrate America”. The MHS Band will perform patriotic selections along with cultural/musical highlights such as rock and roll and jazz. The event will also pay tribute to our local veterans as well as Major Michael Donohue who was killed in Afghanistan this past fall.   I hope many will be able to attend this very special event on Friday evening! 
    1. MHS Celebrates Foreign Language Week ~ March 9 - 13
      • It is with great excitement to announce Foreign Language Week 2015. Please check out all of the exciting events that are taking place all this week in Foreign Language. I hope to see many of you at the Indoor Soccer Game on Monday, March 9th after school in the MHS Gym!

      • Please be reminded that Progress Reports will be distributed on Wednesday, March 11 through a brief advisory at the end of the school day. 
    1. Parent-Teacher Conferences ~ March 11, 2015
      • Just a reminder that Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held next Wednesday from 6:00 – 8:30pm. This event was moved from the original date of March 4, 2015. Due to the tremendous amount of snow days we had to begin Quarter III, it was decided to move progress reports up one week.   Please be sure that you complete the appointment sheet for all of your teachers. Appointment Forms will be distributed this week! There will be some available in the main office.
    1. MASC State Conference ~ March 11 – 13, 2015
      • The Middleboro High School Student Council will be attending their state conference next week. I am proud of the 25 students who will be representing our school at this conference. Also, five students under the direction of Mr. Pelletier from TV Production will capture all the special moments of the conference that will host over 1,100 student leaders from across the state. A special note of luck to Doug Botelho who is running for State Vice President! Make us proud, Doug! 

    Have a great week and be good to each other!
